The story of Ash and his battle with the undead may get another chapter, and, no, we're not talking about the remake starring Jane Levy that's coming out this April. We're talking about the official sequel by the man who've created the series: Sam Raimi.

At a press event to promote Oz: The Great and Powerful in London, Raimi let those in attendance in on what he'll be doing this summer in regards to fourth movie in the Evil Dead series.

"I would love to make Evil Dead 4. My brother and I plan to work on the script this summer," Raimi said.

And that brother is probably none other than Ivan Raimi, who collaborated with Sam on a number of his projects.

Any Evil Dead sequel will probably have Bruce Campbell in it since an Evil Dead without Campbell is like a Terminator movie without Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The more interesting question is how the fourth movie will tie in with the reboot, if at all. I can see Raimi do something that will have the new Ash meet the old Ash via time travel/alternative dimensions. Evil Dead 4: Days of Future Past?
